Thermage® Skin Tightening | Greenwich
Thermage Fairfield | Thermage Stamford
The Thermage CPT procedure is an FDA approved method for tightening skin and for smoothing wrinkles. This cosmetic procedure does not require invasive surgery, chemicals, needles, or lasers. Ideal candidates for Thermage CPT have mild to moderate facial laxity. The Thermage CPT procedure can also be used to treat patients who have areas of skin that are still loose after a surgical face lift.
The term "CPT" stands for "Comfort Pulse Technology." With this technology, Thermage has become a much more comfortable and much more effective procedure for skin tightening. There are two ways in which Thermage CPT improves patient comfort. First, instead of one continuous unbroken pulse, the CPT technology breaks up the Thermage pulse into a series of micro-pulses. Second, the CPT technology delivers the Thermage pulses with vibration. The vibration reduces the sensation of heating, which also leads to improved patient comfort.
The greatly enhanced patient comfort allows us to make many more passes over the tissues. Depending on the area being treated, we now make 8-12 passes over the tissues with Thermage CPT instead of the 4-5 passes that we used to make with the earlier generation of Thermage. As a result, Thermage CPT treatments are not only much more comfortable for our clients but also much more effective than the earlier generations of Thermage.
There is no special care needed after treatment, and most patients return to their regular activities immediately. Some people experience mild redness, but it usually disappears quickly. Although very rare, like all medical procedures there are some possible side affects such as redness, swelling, blisters, bumps and rare instances of surface irregularities.
